ALS5/SPG11/KIAA1840 mutations cause autosomal recessive axonal Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.
Roma, Italy. In Brain, Jan 2016
Besides, we screened for all the known genes related to axonal autosomal recessive Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT2A2/HMSN2A2/MFN2, CMT2B1/LMNA, CMT2B2/MED25, CMT2B5/NEFL, ARCMT2F/dHMN2B/HSPB1, CMT2K/GDAP1, CMT2P/LRSAM1, CMT2R/TRIM2, CMT2S/IGHMBP2, CMT2T/HSJ1, CMTRID/COX6A1, ARAN-NM/HINT and GAN/GAN), for the genes related to autosomal recessive hereditary spastic paraplegia with thin corpus callosum and axonal peripheral neuropathy (SPG7/PGN, SPG15/ZFYVE26, SPG21/ACP33, SPG35/FA2H, SPG46/GBA2, SPG55/C12orf65 and SPG56/CYP2U1), as well as for the causative gene of peripheral neuropathy with or without agenesis of the corpus callosum (SLC12A6).
K-Cl cotransporters, cell volume homeostasis, and neurological disease.
Boston, United States. In Trends Mol Med, Aug 2015
Genetic models of certain KCCs, such as KCC3, and their inhibitory WNK-STE20/SPS1-related proline/alanine-rich kinase (SPAK) serine-threonine kinases, have demonstrated the evolutionary necessity of these molecules for nervous system cell volume regulation, structure, and function, and their involvement in neurological disease.
SPAK mediates KCC3-enhanced cervical cancer tumorigenesis.
Tainan City, Taiwan. In Febs J, 2014
Ste20-related proline/alanine-rich kinase (SPAK) plays a role in regulating many biological activities, and interacts with K-Cl co-transporter 3 (KCC3); however, the importance of SPAK for KCC3 function has not been demonstrated.
[Pathophysiological aspects of K+: Cl- cotransporters].
Nueva San Salvador, El Salvador. In Rev Invest Clin, 2014
KCCs belong to the SLC12 (Solute Carrier Family 12) family of electroneutral cation-chloride cotransporters (CCC), and they are secondary active ion transporters because use the established gradients from the primary active transporter through the Na+/K+- ATPase.
